BR Navy Polka Dot Trench! I think I'm in LOVE

This is adorable in my opinion. Anyone else take a fancy to it? It is reduced from $150 to $129.00

    Very cute and so neutral that it could function as a neutral (Wait. Did I really write that?!?).

  • Mochi replied 8 years ago

    Very cute indeed! Could see you stylin' in it!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    @K can Shop,
    I do believe it is a neutral...and yes you SAID that!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    @Mochi,
    It is pretty sweet and I might have to pull the trigger and buy it. I think I hear it whispering to me.....

    Someone tried this and it didn't work, but I think she was a petite. I can definitely see this working for you and your style! You must get it to at least try.

    It is indeed very pretty Meredith!

  • Diana replied 8 years ago

    Meredith, I've seen this in the store and I was less than impressed with the fabric. It seemed very polyester-y (in that kind of staticky, plasticky sense) and a bit too shiny.

  • Sarah A replied 8 years ago

    thanks Diana! I had been eyeing this as well... Go to know!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    @Jsloane and Shannon,
    I do want to look at it at least. No harm in looking!

    @Diana and Sarah A
    Good to know. I will consider myself forewarned!

    Meredith -- love the trench, make sure the length will work for the uses you have in mind! I do think it's a clever way to punch up a wardrobe of mostly solids! It would be very versatile for you!

  • ManidipaM replied 8 years ago

    Very cute! But now Diana's put a rather heavy spanner in the works --- plasticky would be a deal breaker to me, unless it's a serious shade of raincoat!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    @Beth Ann,
    Thanks! I will be checking out this next week. I can order it and if it is "plasticky" or not a good versatile length then I can always return it to our local brick and mortar store (which I've done before with no worries).
    @ManidpaM,
    I will definitely scrutinize the finish very carefully and try not to fall so in love with the pattern that I talk myself into something with a cheesy finish!

  • Diana replied 8 years ago

    Meredith and others: I think I may have overstated how plasticky the material felt. It's not like a plastic bag or anything! (But it did feel a little cheap to me and I don't think it would breathe at all). It felt more like a raincoat rather than a standard trench, so if you are going for rainwear I think it would be fine. I did think that the material did not justify the price though...

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    @Diana
    You may be right. I am looking for something that I can wear inside as a jacket. If it is truly like a raincoat it may not be for me and I appreciate your advice so much! I will try to be objective when I look at it.

    I love this! I love the polka dots and navy color. I hope it works!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Me too Jem!

  • qfbrenda replied 8 years ago

    I tried it and it didn't work for me. I love the way it looks, but I agree it's more of a raincoat than a trench. The 100% polyester fabric made me feel sweaty as soon as I put it on, but it probably wouldn't affect everyone that way. The petite arms were still too long for me but I don't think that would be an issue for you.

  • goldenpig replied 8 years ago

    Well it looks cute but if it doesn't work for you at least you still have your denim polka dot shirt that is very similar!
